Alabama Men’s Golf Opens Play at 2017 NCAA National Championships on Friday Morning...

on Thursday, May 25, 2017

Crimson Tide Men's Golf:

The Alabama men's golf team is set to begin play at the 2017 NCAA Men's Golf National Championships, which tees off on Friday, May 26, and runs through Wednesday, May 31, at the par 72, 7,300-yard Rich Harvest Farms course. 

The Tide will make its 19th appearance at Nationals and ninth showing in the last 11 years, including six appearances in the last seven years.

There will be three rounds of stroke play for the 30-team field with a cut to 15 teams after 54 holes. 

Those 15 teams will be whittled down to eight teams after a fourth round of stroke play. The eight teams will then begin three rounds of match play for the national title (1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6, 4 vs. 5), which is slated to be held on May 30-31.

After a slow start to the 2016-17 season, Alabama is playing some of its best golf at the right time of year. Over the last six tournaments this spring, the Crimson Tide has finished outside the top five only once. 

That occasion came when it placed sixth at the SEC Championships. However, Alabama advanced to match play with the result and reached the semifinals before falling to No. 3 seed and 15th-ranked Texas A&M.

After averaging a team total of 876.0 over the first four stroke play tournaments of the year, the Tide has lowered that more than 21 strokes in the six tournaments since. 

Over the stretch, Alabama's team average has dropped to 854.7 per tournament.
